2:35am
don't end up in the booth voting for number two. if you liked one he was likeable the other wasn't i don't think it has any effect whatsoever on the vote. the question is will it effect the de lates that are coming up? that's the heavy weight stuff between obama and romney. the one advantage that biden laid down is in the you'll arguments he made the point that had been left out of the first debate. what he was trying to do was to set the premises for the up coming debate by filling in the larynx by answering the charges romney had made and obama had left unanswered. >> was this bv bee late a game changer? let's ask. democratic strategist. michelle talk with the economy. on that topic who came out on
